Celebrating 2 Years With "Sweet Colin"

First Day Of Pre-K
It has been an AMAZING 2 years since we first held our son Colin! We thank God everyday that
HE allowed us to be Colin's parents! Colin is SO sweet, loving and kind hearted. Colin brings so much Joy and Laughter into our home. He's overcome so many milestones in just 2 years. His smile lights up every room he enters. Colin started Pre-K this year. Colin's first 2 weeks of school were pretty rough. Colin still has difficulty with the feelings of Mom not coming back for him. He's doing great in school now! Loves school and his teachers! This mama is SO happy he's starting to feel good that his mama always coming back. God has big plans for Colin! Colin has already decided he wants to be a pilot and fly big airplanes.

"I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him"

Blanket Auction For Precious HollyMei

God has a special way of  bringing people together. The world of adoption seems to be filled with many "red threads"  I've been blessed with a special friend Sharon, through our love for adoption! Sharon's family had already adopted 3 precious children from China before we met. It's been such a blessing to follow their journey to adopt 2 more precious children, since we first met.
Little did we know when we became friends her family would soon be traveling once again to bring home a precious little girl named "HollyMei" from the same orphanage as our son Colin. "God knew"
God's perfect timing!!!
